    You know, there’s obviously not going to be some hard fast rule for this, so I’d probably just play it safe and choose a dress of a different color.  It’s a cute dress, but why risk it?

    No bride + black cardigan = why not?

    Since you will be wearing a black cardigan, I don’t think a black and white outfit would be unacceptable and since it’s 2 men you should be totally in the clear.

    I think as long as you keep the cardigan on (and it sounds like you will since it’ll be freezing) its fine. If there were a bride then I would say no way.

    @MissBoston: Ditto!  And it is a super cute dress.  J.Crew knows what they’re doing (except their proportions never seem to work for me!)

    I think it should be totally fine; however, you might want to check with the guys to make sure. I don’t think it would even be a problem if there was a bride. It doesn’t look at all like a bridal gown.

    I think it’s adorable and would be okay, but I suggest asking the grooms what they think.

    Since there is no bride, would seem fine, but only if you had a blazer and white is only an accent color, not the whole outfit, In My Humble Opinion

    very cute dress…. with the accessories you are talking about it — i bet it would be fine!

    PLUS – unless one of the grooms is wearing a dress — I think that rule is out the door.

    I LOVE the dress!  Maybe it’s because I won’t really care if someone wears a white dress to my wedding (unless it is really long and clearly a bridal gown, but that would be weird anyway, right?)  I say go for it, but like others have suggested, maybe just shoot an email to the grooms so that you can have peace of mind?  Also….that would be a fabulous rehearsal dinner dress!

    Probably fine, but why not ask the grooms? Beautiful dress.
